19 minutes past the hour. here's your friday dish of scrambled politics. republican governor scott walker is back. a promise he made at cpac.
2:20 am
he made this analogy about why he should be the next president. >> for years i've been concerned about that threat. i want a commander-in-chief who will do everything in their power to ensure that the threat from radical islamic terrorists don't wash up on american soil. if i can take on 100,000 protesters i can do the same across the world. >> well in an e-mail to the hill a spokesperson for governor walker said he was in no way comparing any american citizen to isis while the governor was saying while faced with adversity he chooses strength and leadership. rick perry had this reaction during an interview. >> trying to make the connection between isis and unions was a mistake. these are americans. we're talking about people in the case of isis who are beheading individuals and committing heinous crimes. this is the face was evil. to try to make the relationship
2:21 am
between them and the unions is inappropriate. the senate voted unanimously to award the congressional gold medal to those who participated in the "selma" march 50 years ago. the bill heads to house to which passed its own version earlier this month. next week president obama as well as former president george w. bush will join a bipartisan delegation for a three day pilgrimage to commemorate bloody sunday. likely absent from the event, steve scalise. he made always in december after admitting to giving a speech to a group founded by former kkk leader david duke 12 years ago. the congressional black caucus urged scalise to attend the summit. he hasn't made a firm decision about it this year but says he'll definitely go next year. and a congressional push to award former navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle with the highest military award. texas congressman roger williams has introduced a bill that would
2:22 am
award kyle the congressional medal of honor for his service in iraq. this week a texas jury constrict former marine accused of killing kyle and his friend in 2013. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. 21 minutes now just turning 22 minutes past the hour. i have your friday morning talk about politics and all that's going on in this wild and whacky world. >> happy friday betty. >> speaking of whacky. we'll get to that in a minute. a lot of fiery speeches at cpac. anyone pull away from the pack. >> we have to wait to see who will pull away to be the front-runner. two speeches that stood out to me were carly fiorina and also new jersey governor chris christie. carly fiorina is positioning herself to be the attack dog in the republican party for 2016
2:23 am
against democratic candidates. she really made a fiery speech. it was kind of comparable i think, to the type of rhetoric that we used to hear from former alaska governor sarah palin who also spoke yesterday. then also with new jersey governor chris christie he tried to position himself as the anti-jeb bush if you will who will speak today. so, you know they are kind of going after the same donor base. it was interesting to hear him say that former governor bush was more of the establishment. i'm interested to see how the governor bush responds to that. >> that's going to be very interesting. back to wisconsin governor scott walker his lack of foreign policy credentials could hinder him. he suggested his experience in battling labor unions in wisconsin was the same to battle
2:24 am
isis. is this going to hurt his possible potential bid? >> here's the issue with governor walker's remarks. you're right. first of all, he since walked back on those comments but not able to articulate his policy. we're talking about the gaffe not about his policy which he hasn't laid out yet. he's got to find a way to stay on message and we noticed this especially with governor walker in particular over the past few weeks. folks, a lot of folks across the country he still has a little bit lower name recognition. he has to make sure when he's out there making these speeches he's talking about his policy. we saw just governor texas governor rick perry criticize him on that and i think he's really got to stay on message, deliver his policy especially when talking about something so serious like the isis terrorists. >> absolutely. that's definitely not a joking matter. thank you so much kevin.
2:25 am

"way too early" starts right now. ♪ good morning. congratulations. you have almost made it through the work week. it's friday. you've almost made it through freb. february 27th. this is "way too early." good morning. we begin this morning in washington, d.c. where it looks like that shutdown of the department of homeland security may be avoided at least for now. now dhs funding runs out at midnight tonight. house republicans have finally agreed to vote today on a clean three week extension of funding something we suggested here on "morning joe" yesterday morning. it would postpone the deadline to march 19th and leave lawmakers three weeks to
2:30 am
reconcile their differences over dhs financing and immigration policy. before that stop gap compromise was introduced speaker john boehner was pressed by reporters on whether or not the house would take up the senate's clean bill one that would fund the department for the rest of the year and not cause a government shutdown. john boehner's performance, anything but dull. >> i just think it's outrageous that senate democrats are using homeland security funding for blackmail to protect the actions of the president where the president himself said he didn't have the authority to do this. yesterday the white house press secretary said that this is a fight amongst republicans. it is not a fight amongst republicans. all republicans agree that we want to fund the department of homeland security and we want to stop the president's executive actions with regard
